Arrivals

by Megan Guimbellot

I hope you are sleeping sound
700 miles away and counting//waiting to take off is like waiting forever to breathe

just

once

more

(This landing is all I've ever asked for))

And the arrivals gate at Orlando International,
with it's scuffed-up floors and fingerprinted windows, its dusty fake plants and death-slow escalators,
is suddenly more beautiful than ocean or altitude...
